Tell us a little about yourself
Also known by Shanlandia, I was born and raised in Kansas City in a large family of creators. In 2009, I relocated to Chicago to study at Columbia College and have since grown roots here in the city. I am a fitness enthusiast and music lover and am constantly exploring the city with my dog, Gizmo.
What kind of art do you create?
My work is different every day but typically features bold color, clean lines and often incorporates found objects and vintage artifacts.
How did you get started?
I started making art out of a desire to see things that I’ve never seen before; to put things out into the universe that inspire emotion.
How would you describe your artistic style?
My artistic style is bold, colorful and provokes the viewer to do a double take.
